For more Civil War era history, check out ru-clip.net/video/c0bEtXAuHbo/video.html - “The Tale Of Samantha Street” tells the story of a forgotten slave cemetery and a sweet lady, a former slave, who wished to be burried with her family. Also check out ru-clip.net/video/Nq5RBvEcPmQ/video.html the story of a forgotten Confederate fort not too far from where this cannon was fired.
Why Mr. Seymour noted that this is a *15" BROOKE* rifle first, I have no idea. He later corrected himself, noting that it was a 7", as he remarked about the markings off the trunnions. The BIGGEST RIFLED Brookes is the 7"..........just what he noted later in the interview.The BIGGEST Brooke was an 11" SMOOTHBORE. The Brookes were offered first with a Single Breech Band, then a Double Breech Band, and lastly a Triple Banded Breech; offered in March 1862.*Bottomline, an AWESOME VIDEO,* just a slip of the tongue. 👍🏼😎
FOR GOD SAKES GOOD SIR, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE???????????????????? WOULD YOU JUST LOOK AT YOURSELF? YES ! YES ! YES !!!!!! THAT ONE... PUT THE BUTTON IN...... lord have mercy crying out loud........ what is going on with you today? you're not your normal self!
Sidestep Adventures And once again, it’s time for the Republicans to kick the living shit out of the Democrats once again in the year 2019.
Hay I shot that gun that’s in Columbus Georgia I live across the river over there and I signed up with those boys thanks for sharing
What the hell low load with no projectile , kind of a let down
Video quality is good, subject is something I want to see, then best part is ruined by having the person handing the tools for loading stand right in the way so I could not see what and how the load was inserted and packed. Good Job! (sarcasm)
can't believe the loader had a cigar hanging out of his mug!
I fell asleep
No projectile that was sjit
That’s probably a 1//4 of the powder they’d normally use, plus no projectile was used
Is the pole dude drunk ? 🤔
this cannon was obviously on the losing side, slow to load, no way to aim
The best part is it didn’t take long at all to load it...
I fired artillery as a re-enactor at Chalmette Battlefield in New Orleans(War of 1812) and Civil War and I can tell you that after firing a 6lb.field piece or a 12lb. Naval carriage all day,my body would be sore from the concussion..But oh so fun..
The historian missed one out of his 247 buttons.
laaaaaaaaame, no projectile.
A Naval gun is not called a canon, it is a gun. I am not sure how that works if you take said gun from a ship and transfer it to land. Does it then become a canon?
That 1 button not buttoned up is bugging the hell out of me lol
Loved the slow-mo! Thanks for filming this.
Hmmmmm.......who on earth would downvote a vid about American History ? Seems un-American....
Rocket science nope pretty simple shit
Yikes, get a wind cover on that mic!
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSS_JacksonThis article says that the Jackson only had 2 x 32 pounders?
All that pageantry for one shot?
This cannons used for fortifications.In First serbian and seccond serbian uprising 1804 qnd 1815 against Turk Karageorge Black George and Milos Obrenovic used that for good turkish fortifications They called those cannons kabuz.
As this was a Confederate cannon, manufactured at the Selma armory, why the Yankee uniforms?
Rifled barrel. Who knew? Wow
The guy with the pipe stood at the muzzle while powder charge was loaded?
Powder puff charge in that gun.
They open fire at 7:20
Pretty cool but you need a sock on the mic. Can't hear what they're saying sometimes.
So much time waste In loading........
This needs to be seen on all the news networks.. the first 10 minutes... this is news.
1 2 hiii
heritage history craftsmanship pride from a tube that sat at bottom of river
Now where can I buy a cannon? Second amendment protects my god given right to keep and bear arms, arms short for armaments, which include guns, cannons, and other armaments.
All that work we and they all look away when they fire it!
Wow!! Love it!
Imagine a full charge with a projectile
Wow great to see the cannon in action.top
No close ups. To much talking.
Awesome video! I can imagine the damage that would do to charging confederates.
AWESOME!! Equally amazing is the quality of construction allows it to be fired 154 years later. People think that nothing more than buckshot was used in the Civil War(actually, The War Between the States) had horrific amounts of physical damage done to soldiers who survived. Many suffered both mentally and physically. With scant medicines to control pain, many became alcoholics or addictive to morphine. Without corrective surgery, many were disfigured for life, some to the point they never left the home. If they were lucky, they could work the fields. Others were confined to bed or chair, needing to be nursed the rest of their lives.I love your work...you try to make a record of a world of the past that, without your dedication, would slip into history unnoticed. I liken your passion to the search for and filming of Titanic. Your locations may not have the notoriety, but, is in essence, the same thing.
Wow! that was awesome! Cheers to the South. It was worth the wait to see that big gun fire off. So cool.
Brilliant how the camera is behind that gunner so you can’t see any of the muzzle load! Fantastic directing. Bravo! Other than that yer impressive bang!!
Damn! Wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that bad boy! I'm a woman and wow! That was so cool!
So this is what Tchaikovsky used in 1812 Overture? The cannons at the piece?
Oops. They forgot the shell! ;)
they should restore that ironclad
Sharing a similar large Sea Cost Howitzer - first time fired since 1840 - we used 6 pounds of black power max load is 25 pounds Enjoy at ru-clip.net/video/3pYykIjIWzc/video.html
If you have ever wondered why Stonewall Jackson was partially deaf, stand close to one of these weapons; and then do it every day for a month, without earplugs.
Imagine being on the receiving end of that bad boy!!That was really awesome to see, many thanks.
That firing process was ridiculously long
That's my unit the Pawnee Guard, in the white pants. I had a blast participating at the last river blast event despite freezing our ass off at night. We had fun.
WAS'NT a civil war!!!
Thanks so much for the video!
